Board has voted to terminate contract of teacher Georgia Clark for good cause. Motion made by Trustee Paz. Second by Norman Robbins. Motion passes 8-08

Clark was let go after posting a string of illegal immigration comments to President Donald Trump from a now-deleted Twitter account.

One of the tweets said, “Mr. President, Fort Worth Independent School District is loaded with illegal students from Mexico.  Carter-Riverside High School has been taken over by them.  Drug dealers are on our campus and nothing was done to them.”

Clark has the right to appeal to Texas Education Agency Commissioner within the next 15 days.

Fort Worth ISD said Clark admitted to posting on Twitter, “FW ISD is loaded with illegal students from Mexico. Carter-Riverside HS has been taken over by them” & “I really do need a contact here in FW who should be actively investigating & removing illegals that are in the public school system.”View image on Twitter

In a message to parents last week, FWISD Superintendent Kent Scribner said, “There has been much talk in the news and on the Internet about the use of social media by our staff. Our mission is to prepare ALL students for success in college, career and community leadership. Let me reiterate our commitment that every child in the District is welcome and is to be treated with dignity and respect.”Comments (18)
